UPDATE: Stray kitten with inseparable bond to puppy has died
CRESTVIEW, Fla. (WEAR) —
It's a sad update to a story Channel 3 News brought you about an adorable puppy and kitten with an inseparable bond.
Milo, the beloved companion to Otis the dog, has died.
Milo and Otis were rescued along Pine Avenue in Crestview.
A good Samaritan spotted Otis carrying the kitten in his mouth and both were placed into foster care.
Channel 3 News learned that Milo had an internal parasite and despite the hard work by Panhandle Animal Welfare Sanctuary (PAWS), she didn't make it.
They say it was an infection she probably had before she was found.
PAWS said the message here is to spay and neuter your pets so animals don't have to suffer.
PAWS said Otis will be introduced to another kitten.
If he takes to the kitten, they will still be adopted together.
